President Biden’s job approval ratings continue to tank, as the latest poll shows 50 percent of Americans disapprove of his performance in the White House — with independents’ disapproval of Biden’s job putting him in negative territory.
The president, dealing with intense criticism over his bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan and a surge in COVID cases, has seen his approval rating fall to 42 percent, a drop of four points since early August, according to the Quinnipiac University poll released on Tuesday.
It also marks the first time Biden’s ratings have fallen into negative territory in the Quinnipiac poll since he took office in January.
Broken down by political party, Democrats approve of the job Biden is doing 88 – 7 percent, Republicans disapprove 91 -7 percent and independents disapprove 52 – 34 percent.
Other surveys began showing Biden’s approval rating falling below 50 percent at the beginning of August.
